Explore the world of Vera, a teenage domestic worker, through letters written to her best friend Ruth Plunkett in the 1920s and 1930s. This innovative and interactive program explores how storytelling and creative ideas are used as a tool to stimulate conversation, share opinions and expose students to the basics of archival research. Students will take part in individual and group writing exercises and presentations that use historical content to explore contemporary themes, including fashion, music, communications and social media.

I received your nice little letter last Thursday when I came in to Toronto. I suppose you wonder why I have not answered it long ago, well you see I am on my holidays, have been away for the past three weeks, you see I just come into the city on my Thurs. afternoon off. I am at home today so I received your letter.
